We spent a couple of hours on the beach after a snorkeling time around. The white sand and the variations of blue of the water are amazing. In October, the temperature of both air and water was hot, very enjoyable (take care of sunburns!) 30...More

It is quite stunning in the pictures, but a bit sharp under foot, the snorkelling is good, the tour people do insist you wear life jackets. A lot of the island is coral fragments rather than sand. Take water proof beach shoes. Half a day...More

日中のシュノーケリングなどは行きませんでしたが、サンセットツアーに参加しました。久米島本島にしずむ夕日もきれいでした(グリーンフラッシュみたいな緑の光が見えた?)。涼しいし昼より人が少ないので、ロマンチックです。また日が沈んだあとには海ほたるも見られ、星空もきれいです。 sunset sea firefly starry sky nice and cool in evening(than daytime) some kind of green flush?

Absolutely stunning beach. Looks like you were dropped into a travel magazine, until you realize that you were dropped on a beach with nothing on it. The lifeguards limit where you can snorkel and walk to and there is no shelter from the conditions -...More
